I'm having the same problem with my HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160B. I just typed it into yahoo and got all kinds of links with people complaining about it.
Anyway, could you email me those driver files also? I'm running XP and I've been trying to get this drive to work for days.



: Hi,
: I had a similar problem with my HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160B CD-RW drive. It seems that a fresh version of windows does not provide all the driver files you need to run it. This is the case for Windows XP too. But I simply grabbed the driver files from a similarly setup computer and placed them in their propar place, uninstalled the marked CD-ROM, and re-added it and everything worked.
: I could send the driver files for the HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8160B if your email works ok.

: : I reformatted my computer and loaded win Me into it. (but before I did this I printed out the device manager listings) I have everything loaded into the computer, except it will not reconize my cd-writer..(HL-DT-ST-CD-RW-GCE-8160B) It is listed in the cd-rom part of device manager. Device manager used to say in the hdc menu ... Intel 82801BA Ultra Controller, primary IDE controller (dual fifo), and Secondary IDE controller (dual fifo) .... now it says Intel 82810BA Ultra ATA Controller, Primary Ultra ATA controller, and secondary Ultra ATA Controller. Is this my problem? Did not have any cd's to this computer.. had to download everything. HELP !!!
